Poetry, storytelling, dance and sculpture: the work exhibited here celebrates creative projects with different communities across Cambridge University Hospitals. Produced by Addenbrooke’s Arts and arts and well-being charity, Cambridge Curiosity and Imagination, it includes an exceptionally diverse collection of new work with poems written especially for the hospital by Jo Shapcott (winner of the Queen’s Gold Medal, 2011) and three Cambridge poets; stories co-created with people living with dementia and their carers; and new stories of happiness moments gathered for the Taking Note project.  

'These poems are serious, and they’ve certainly got a serious subject. The subject is life, and how it might be lost; and how it might be saved. There is brave and tender hope here; but, even deeper down, the thrill of being human.' Clive James
